September 2017 Graduation Ceremony

This week we had our first graduation of the fall semester at Patterson Adult School.

For our potluck, someone brought home made sliders and someone else brought hot dogs. There were lots of desserts and side dishes and it was all delicious.

The word of the day was achievement and it was used a lot, especially in the context of graduating from the course is a significant achievement.

Achievements like this definitely belong on resumes to help career building. It demonstrates to employers that they can complete a course of training and practice lifelong learning.

We always allow graduates to say a few words when they receive their certificates. Most just give a quick thank you. It is, for many, their first exposure to public speaking, of course.

One student received a congratulatory bouquet of balloons from her family. We always recognize family and friends who support our graduates because, we know that without that kind of support, graduations like this wouldn’t be possible.

It was the end of one class, but it also points to the beginning of another. Many of these basic electronic bookkeeping students will be moving on to the advanced class using QuickBooks.

So congratulations to all of the graduates and good luck finding jobs with your new skills to put on your resumes.

Labor Day 2017

As the sun sets on today's Labor Day, we are given one last opportunity to be reminded of the importance of a good day's work on both our bodies and our souls.

One important way to celebrate Labor Day is to take a short course that hones your labor skills. Whether it's a Microsoft Office class from home, or something larger like learning a new language or even something very specific for a job like QuickBooks classes, practicing lifelong learning is something we at Community Business College encourage for everybody.
The more you learn, the more you earn.

Happy Valentine's Day 2019

Our students are the best! Thanks for the chocolates and thanks for sharing with the class! We really do have the Best Teachers Ever! ...
